Yep, but there may be a shipping fee. Mine was $35, so that makes it the same price!

Woop! Mine arrived before lunch time, just been busy setting it up and reinstalling apps (such a pain without Root and Titanium Backup!). More to follow later...

Yes thats the one flaw with Android.
You can't save your apps etc on line and d/l them to a new phone.
Also lack of a proper back up.
It's the only thing apple does better :(

Sorry, I'm a little confused with the Telecom version of the phone. Will i be able to use it with 2degrees/vodafone if need be or will it only work on Telecom?

It won't provide nationwide 3G on the other two networks.

OK thanks for clearing that up. Much appreciated. May as well purchase from Mobicity then.

Well that's debatable.  I have had several 850/2100 fones on both Vodafone and 2D  3G with no problems.  The only time I ever had an issue was out of the back end of Auckland where even GSM coverage was a no show as well..

OK, getting to grips with the Sensation (been Tweeting up a storm, hard to resist making adding a hash tag to that "Sensation"!).

My MHL cables both work (go standard connections).

WiiMotes don't work, didn't expect them to.

BT keyboard works, BT Mouse pairs, but not properly supported.

Phonejoy works (tried out with Mario kart 64 in N64oid, awesomesauce!).

Video playback proving problematic with most of my test files (wide variety of codecs/bitrates/resolutions/audio encoding types), even with Diceplayer, Moboplayer, Rockplayer. Bit disappointing, since it kinda makes the MHL-out less useful. Doesn play 1080p MP4 well though, and Diceplayer can handle some of the MKVs (even the one with DTS sound and a 9500kbps bitrate).

Already had one out of memory warning.

Browser is lovely with the screen resolution, but quite a bit slower than SGSII, and handles flash much worse too. Love the dynamic reflow though!

Sound quality for music is better based on my limited playback so far (via line out to the car stereo).

Tasker more compatible than with my SGSII, although still can't handle picking up calls (not the fault of either phone, its a Gingerbread thing).

Thanks NZTechFreak. A little concerned about the poor flash and video performance! That's what the Android OS is famous for!

Dolphin Browser HD is noticeably faster than the stock browser. I've made it my default.
